It's difficult to tell if the receiver has a stepped receiver ring or if the step is in the barrel. However, I believe it is the latter, since all the stepped ring actiona I have seen are single square bridge, like my .350 Rigby Magnum.



The Rigby cocking piece sight might be a good option for this rifle, since the caliber clearly has longer range potential than the open sights can take advantage of.

Another option is slanted magazine and then without square bridge.

Very nice rifle in a much classic caliber; would easily find a place on my rifle rack!

I'm not sure what you're saying, but my rifle has all three: a slanted magazine, stepped receiver ring and square bridge.

In Speed`s first book there is some fotos of actions with stepped recerver and slanted magazine. Only square bridge missing.

My .303 Rigby had slanted mag but with rounded tops.

The Lancaster Mauser pictured doesn`t have a stepdown reciever ring.

Only the earliest Magnum Mausers had stepdown front ring...like my .400/350ex.

BTW.Is that your .400/350 Rigby?..

That step on the Lacaster is certainly part of the barrel, not of the receiver ring.Note, the crown/V London "view" mark has to be on the receiver and the barrel,not two times on the receiver ring.

Gee. I had a Model 95 by Charles Lancaster in .280 Ross which was identical. I sold it for a lot less than $6500. Probably shouldn't have!
